Megan's Natural Journey :)


Member Journals and Timelines

So yesterday I decided that it was best for me to comb out my TnR locks and start natural. Since I decided that I wanted dreadlocks, I have also decided I want a simpler, healthier lifestyle all together. If I could I would be barefoot, wear only dresses, let my hair lock, cover myself in tattoos, and smoke my hookah all while living harmoniously with our Earth Mother. However, since I work 56 hours a week, I can't. So I will live as primarily as possible by controlling what I put into my body and learning patience and how to let go by embarking on this natural journey.

Here is my freshly washed, uncombed hair :)
(Posting from a tablet so it's attached)

Two weeks of not combing. I have also been using the Lockin' Up Liquid shampoo for a week now.

It's now been a little over a month since I comber out my TnR dreads and started natural. My hair is pretty much all sectioned and now I/m just waiting for more knots!

I call this knot Audrey 2 because it wants to suck up EVERYTHING around it! She is definitely forming the quickest.

This is the only other knot I can fish out of this craziness right now.

General Questions

After reading then re-reading SE's post, I decided to start over. It only took an hour by soaking in conditioner and running my fingers through. It's important at for me to dread naturally, but for a reason I can't articulate. I just feel the NEED to. Now as I watch my life and body change, I can watch my hair change as well.Thanks for all the replies loves :)

General Questions

After years of admiring others' locks I just wanted them. Now it's more than that though. I have found myself wanting to have a simpler lifestyle all together, even though I am only a few weeks into my journey. It's also about letting go. Being that I am a stylist, I didn't want to look like I had bed head all the time. Now I feel like I'm missing out on an important part of the journey by having used the TnR method.Decisions, decisions.

General Questions

That's what I was thinking until I started looking through timelines of the natural forming locks. I was instantly jealous that I would miss out on the loops and knots. Then I found a few that had fallen out and made me wonder if I should just comb them out. I will leave them though, secretly hoping they all fall out :)

General Questions

Good afternoon everyone! Almost two weeks ago I decided to TnR almost all of my hair. I have been washing prettyconsistently, every other day or every two days. I know it is normal for them to loosen and even fall apart completely, and some are. So my question is should I comb them out and let them form naturally, or just let them continue falling and reforming? It took me 6 hours to TnR them all (approx. 50), so it will probably take me around the same amount of time to comb them out.

Megan Elyse :)

This is the one of the little guys that fell out.

They are all very loose at the root and the bottom three inches or so.

General Talk

I am only a week into my journey. I used the TnR method thinking it would be a little neater for my work. I haven't gotten a lot of negative comments or looks from strangers yet. My grandfather actually told me I look like 'the N word'. It really pissed me off but I just let it roll off my shoulders. I try to think 'I'm doing this for myself and I won't let them get to me'. It is very frustrating to be the bigger person though.Good luck on your journey!!

Hello world!


Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone. I'm Megan, a 23 year old cosmetologist, lover of piercings and tattoos, and an eclectic Wiccan still searching for my path. About two weeks ago I tarted adding random dreadlocks in my hair for no other reason than I wanted to. It was then I started researching and came across this site. After reading many many discussions I decided to comb out the locks I had an start over with better sectioning and do all of my hair except the fringe. On April 9th I began sectioning and forming what will become MY beautiful and uniquely formed dreads. Two days ago I finished with the TnR method. I did not do this tightly as I do not want to damage my hair. I know my journey is just beginning and I cannot be more excited. I am learning to let go and let them be. It's especially hard for me because I am a hairdresser and I do not like frizzy or fuzzy. However, I'm managing.Any and all advice will be appreciated and accepted.Love and light to all,Megan
